Venue dinner

The day before on the 15th of February, there was a dinner around 20:00 hrs near the venue. The dinner took place at The Neiburgs Restaurant which is located in the hart of Old Riga, Jauniela 25/27 - Map.

The Neiburgs Restaurant is very popular for both visitors and locals, who like to go out and enjoy a good dinner. Its success is based on the combination of historical and stylish elements in the restaurant's decor and menu. The kitchen is run by a young, ambitious and talented chef. In his food, traditional Latvian flavours and seasonal ingredients meet the influences of a diversity of global cuisines. The wine list is specially selected and supplied by Valentina Grandane, Latvia's first lady of wine.
